Background downloading will come to the Edge browser in W10 Mobile, but not at the first release

Microsoft’s Edge browser is a universal app which promise to deliver a much improved and more compatible browsing experience on Windows 10 Mobile, but what about features we are used to on the desktop, such as being able to download in the background?

Reader Mayur Prayag was concerned whether the new Edge browser will support background downloading, and asked Ade Bateman, the Program Manager for the browser on twitter.


He responded that Microsoft was working on the feature, but that it may not make it to the initial release.

Microsoft has however said they intend to release frequent updates to the app, so even if its not there initially, its good to know it is on its way.

Thanks Mayur for the tip.
